Caucus for Women's Leadership - Home
Elections 2013
The Constitution has enabled us elect 47 Women Representatives into the National Assembly.  Our representation as women in the just concluded general elections 2013 in other elective positions such as the President, Governor, Senator, Member of Parliament and County Representative are very dismal.  We have secured only 16 Member of Parliament seats in the 290 seated National Assembly.  We have further elected 8 female Deputy Governors out of 94 gubernatorial positions and 76 female County Ward Representatives out of 1450 wards.

From the Chairperson's Desk

The Caucus is currently re - launching its District Assemblies to County Assemblies to reflect the devolved government.  Assemblies that have already experienced this change include; Mombassa County Women's Regional Assembly and the Makueni County Regional Assembly. 

Since the establishment of the pilot assembly, the Caucus had established 29 District Women's Regional Assemblies spread across all the 8 provinces in Kenya. 

The rationale behind this strategy is that effective and sustainable support for women’s participation in socio-economic development processes must engage and be led by members of that community. The Caucus plays a facilitative and technical supportive role, while the membership implements all program activities.
